like a bird’s nest be a thing of great beauty

Category: Barn Conversion Journal October 15th, 2010 by mbc

I’m not sure that the barn resembles any kind of bird’s nest, but I do appreciate Roger Deakin’s words on the beauty to be found in the ordinary.

An old house may be built of the humblest, simplest materials, and, like a bird’s nest be a thing of great beauty.

Or: like a bird’s nest, a house may be beautiful because of the way it combines the simple, ordinary natural materials of which it is built.

Notes from Walnut Tree Farm, page 5.
